I work with software and education technology companies to produce content marketing materials that engage and persuade customers.
I fell in love with writing promotional materials after participating in the American Field Service (AFS) Intercultural program as a high school student. I had such a good time that when I returned to my own country, I helped promote the program by writing newsletter articles and speeches.
I’m committed to excellence.
I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. During my time in college, I built practical experience by working as a writer for the college newspaper, an editor-in-chief of a student magazine, and a two-time intern at the Maryland Office of Tourism Development.
What does this mean for you? It means I’m an old hand at interviewing, researching efficiently, and producing high-quality content.
I like a challenge.
After I graduated from college, I came across the book Secrets of a Freelance Writer by Robert Bly and decided to strike out on my own despite my newbie status. As you can see, that worked out!
One of my proudest moments involved ghostwriting an article on the use of sensors and analysis software in the postsecondary classroom. The PR agency asked me to submit the article to the Journal of Chemical Education. The catch was that the person for whom I’d ghostwritten taught physics, not chemistry! My agency liaison wanted to write the whole thing off as a mistake, but I felt that the interview had provided enough to actually satisfy chemistry instructors. Bottom line: I created an article on physics instruction relevant enough for the peer-reviewed journal to accept!
What does this mean for you? It shows that I have the initiative to not only hit the ground running, but I also become very invested in making your project a success.
